you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senat

connell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss. now, if you're mitch mcconnell and we've been sitting there for years ago we would have had unanimity that niche was keening of the republican party in kentucky. and that was not even a contest for who was the utterly acknowledged leader. and we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource he could to every attempt, every string he could pull to keep rand paul from winning the republican nomination. and failed mr. luther if your looking at this from mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for the senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell, and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge at portage and no longer controlled, your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you're john cornyn, you would've stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around, but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful figure
% of romney's base are white people in this country. senator lindsey graham came out few months ago said, i think we're running out of angry white men. we have to expand our base. when you think about in terms of a ground game who is going to turn out, you do support obama much more likely than what you think about going out for free slice of pizza being motivated by president delivering you pizza. to a phone call or the candidate you don't see billionaires who are profiting from the policies but mitt romney is that are going to benefit from going out getting free pizza and door knocking. there is a different level of engagement because obama is -- >> does anybody have particular aspect of the ground game how it affects women voters? is it going to get more women out than men? how does that work? >> the ground game is extremely important in every election it's important to both parties. the fact is, mitt romney is in ohio, yes, trying to motivate the people that most likely go are going to vote for him reach few undecided voters that are still there. but first lady was in virginia on friday

in mind for 2014. among those that are up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss if we were sitting here four years ago we would have unanimity that he was the king of the republican party in kentucky and there wasn't even a contest for who was the elder li acknowledged leader, then we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource that he could come every attempt come every string he could pull to keep rand paul from running and winning miserably. if you look at this from mccaul's perspectives note that several of the republicans that ran for the senate this time wouldn't promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party that you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you are john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful togethe
-americans and minorities. i'm not sure the specter of lindsey graham and john mccain, who i think said that he felt like susan rice wasn't very bright. >> yes, that was the language he used. >> i don't know i don't feel that's a good position for either people to be in in the republican party. >> raul, we have to have you back on. you're always a great guest. mark thank you for stepping out with us. coming up, live to capitol hill where a senate intelligence hearing on benghazi is set to start. it's one of a couple happening today. none include general david petraeus, but we have new word the general will make an appearance in the next 24 hours. ♪ i am the ghost of cookies past. residue. so gross. well you didn't use new pam, so it looks like you're "stuck" with me.

taken by executive fiat, which is even more anathema to senators mccain, graham, and others. that is a sideshow, a three-ring circus, and have a couple of side rings, that remained in the bombings as well. one thing i would say about the fiscal cliff, at one level you could say there's no great sense of urgency. as many people have said, it is more a fiscal slump than clef. it is not like we're going to plunge into the horrible up this immediately. there are many things that an administration can do to ameliorate the impact of many of the tax cuts and of the budget cuts. there are some significant amounts of discussion about how you deal with budgets. you can move accounts aren't among the things related to public safety. it is not quite the same as it was when we had the shutdown of the government in 1995, but there is a lot of discretion there, and among other things, you can have an administration that the sides -- that decides to not to effectively change withholding rates to keep the immediate impact of the tax cuts from taking hold. you can do that for only certain tim
. >> stephanie: wow. we have been talking about the demographics. i think lindsay graham said it they are running out of old angry white guys aren't they? >> it's what i told y'all, the first time i ever made a prediction in public or private, because -- of course -- >> stephanie: what is the point of saying -- >> the reason that he won was go tv. and they had an organization. i got a call -- i came in out of the mountain at 2:00 on tuesday to vote, and i got my first in my history my first old fart call. they called me -- they called me from obama and wanted to know if i had a problem getting to the polls, and wanted to come by and pick me up. >> stephanie: fortunately you don't have a very distinctive voice. >> oh, god -- no they just did a great job. and last week i was counting on -- they set up at virginia tech that the lines were two and a half to three hours students coming out to vote. >> stephanie: yep. >> but a lot of it has to do of course, your show -- >> stephanie: it's mostly my show. >> the conservatives control the radio airwaves and cable t
that my representative, lindsey graham, has rescinded his pledge for the norquist pledge. we have some republicans finally realizing we have to get this deficit under control. if the deficit is doubled, that means george bush's part of the deficit is half. republicans have never wanted to pay their share of the debt he has created. we have to get somebody in there that is going to help pay the deficit. i am middle income. the last payroll deduction i got, i saw $6 more a week on my check. i would rather you take that $6 back and help pay the deficit off. i am tired of this war. bill clinton and george bush start two wars and do not want to fund them. here we are with the mess we have got. guest: i have to tell you, i am tired of people blaming it on bush. at his buddy says bush took us to war and the war is what created all of this debt. bush did not take us to war on his own. democrats voted for that war, too. congress voted for it. you cannot pay it all on george bush. under present obama's term as president, we have accumulated -- he has accumulated 1/3 of our debt, more of -- more

of the senators now, graham said that she's interested in immigration reform. they have to get involved in serious legislation to make sure that something happens and weapon recognize that we have particularly in the latino community, are active, powerful and influential and they're going to do something about it. i see a lot of change this year. it's a real awakening on some of these issues. as for the fiscal cliff we're going to be able to negotiate and we're going to be able to do something about a combination of taxes, and programs, discretionary programs. so i'm looking forward to the negotiations. >> i hope so, congresswoman. it's interesting. i'm sure you've seen clips on t.v. of george bush talking about mandates and political capital that he earned. obviously, what the president truly has a mandate. this is two electoral land slides i mean landslides in a row. he said obviously, you know, basically this question over and overcame up and americans voted for, you know, the rich to pay their fair share right? >> caller: that's absolutely true. it was very clear in this election that the poin

big stake in the company and mark andree son and donald graham said they're only selling as much as they need to to cover their taxes. that's been so much attention on these lock-up periods. employees could sell so now there seems to be kind of a big sigh of relief. back to you. >> with yelp not too long ago, additional proof this can be done. a lot of shares coming to market and yet the price rises. thanks, julia. >>> gary komco kaminski has tho. >> i was just standing in central park now i'm on top of a building. magic of tv. julia talked about facebook. i've been working on putting some data together. i hope to bring it to you maybe next week but i want to sort of let people know, i think this is what is happening right now with facebook. it's very simple. we talk about the closet indexes all the time. we talk about the benchmark huggers. in fact, the fact that facebook is not owned by closet indexers has put a lot of people in the mind set of wanting to own this stock into the end of the year for the simple reason it is not overowned. it not owned by these people. not accumul
ayotte, and also senator lindsey graham about in gaza. you can follow that live on c-span. also, later today john boehner, the speaker of the house has a news conference coming up. that will be a 5 p.m. eastern. we want to point out here on c-span2 coming up at 1:30 p.m., it will be the first news conference since the election for president obama. we'll have live coverage of that and take a phone call reaction as well. to austin, texas. now let's go to roseville -- i hope i got that right on the republican line. go ahead. >> caller: hi. i would like to say that nancy pelosi means leader, is horrible. she was leader last time. what she says and what she does is two different things. she spoke about when barack obama got elected the first, the first time in 2008, this is all going to be a about jobs, jobs, jobs, and they didn't focus on jobs. they pushed through the health care bill, and then she gets up there all the time. she is nervous, she's family, she's bumbling. she's just going to do what she wants but she doesn't look out for the people. she doesn't care. she just doesn't goes a
that senator graham and i laid out and brought structure -- >> 2007. >> yeah. last time and what happened was obviously the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. that's at the top of the list. because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls, 2/3 of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform. along those lines. you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to believe they would agree with that proposal. second thing we have to do, both candidates, president obama, governor romney talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about. the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed the way power plants have to function. that plus the free market force o
